The Instigators Debate What’s Ailing Flailing Washington Capitals (Video)

With an 11-14-1 record, suffice it to say things haven’t gone as planned for the Washington Capitals. Currently seven points out of a playoff spot with just 22 games remaining on their schedule, the situation is getting dire in the District of Columbia.

But what is it, exactly, that’s wrong down in D.C. Is it the subpar play of supposed superstar Alex Ovechkin, or is it that the team has too many grinders and not enough skill players? The crew of The Instigators Live took a little extra time after their regularly scheduled broadcast to debate this very subject just for you loyal readers.

Check out the back-and-forth in this edition of Two Minutes for Instigating.
